The Metal Shark 45 Defiant Fire Rescue is a state of the art welded aluminum monohull vessel designed for fire fighting, command and control operations, and other emergency response missions. Utilizing Metal Shark’s Defiant-class hull design, which has been extensively tested and proven with hundreds of parent-class vessels in service worldwide, the 45 Defiant is surprisingly nimble given its formidable size and heft. The 45 Defiant offers impressive performance, and is equally capable in coastal as well as offshore environments, where it handles heavy seas with poise and balance. Like all Metal Sharks, each 45 Defiant Fire Rescue vessel is specially tailored to meet the specific needs of the customer. Depending on agency need, configuration, features, and layout may differ substantially from the vessel shown here
